Established in 2008 and celebrating their 8th year of business, Mendip Stoves are proudly based in Somerset and despite their relative tenderness in years compared to other stove manufacturers, their drive to produce excellent woodburning stoves is certainly something to be very proud of.
Mendip stoves are quite a rarity within British and European homes, and if you might assume it’s because of the relative age of the company coming into play, you’d not be right. Mendip stoves are quite a fascinating manufacturer given the fact that they are perhaps the only well-known company which only sells their stoves through a vetted and specially selected group of retailers which are absolutely committed to wood burning.
Mendip Stoves are not sold by retailers that have a hand in this and that. Mendip Stoves are only sold by retailers that apply to Mendip themselves and undergo a vetting procedure – which ascertains a retailer’s capability to correctly assess a customer’s requirements, and recommend stoves based on knowledge that goes far beyond what a manual might say. Mendip choose their retailers based upon this and a retailer’s knowledge of freestanding and inset stoves – so you can be rest assured as a customer that you’ll certainly be recommended a stove that suits your needs and your lifestyle should you choose a Mendip stockist.
Therefore, while finding one can be quite difficult, good retailers that do sell these amazing stoves are out there. All that is needed is a little look.
As for draws that come with choosing a Mendip Stove in particular, you’ll benefit from Mendip’s pristine reputation. Well known for creating stoves with high quality cast iron and their range of very attractive bespoke mouldings, efficient combustion is a given with a Mendip stove, thanks to their design allowing a continuous stream of air over the front glass, which will afford you a great view of your burning fire within. Each and every stove is CE marked, which will ensure that it has been independently tested to conform to British and European safety standard.
